Spinal structure

  1. Jun 9, 2015 #1
    In solid state chemistry, what's a normal spinal structure? I came across a question about it and I couldn't find any credible answers.

    Spinal?

    Please elaborate, your question (even assuming I guess correctly what it is about) is rather cryptic.

    TeethWhitener, you're right. The book printed it wrong I guess. So the +2 cation occupies 1/8th of the tetrahedral voids and the +3 cation occupies half of the octahedral voids?

    *spinel
    Sorry about the spelling mistake :P
    The original question was about the lattice system of the anions in a normal spinel structure.
